Disease relevance of RCD1

  • Since overexpression of rcd1-1 cDNA has been shown to bring about an rcd1-like phenotype, we created and examined the overexpression lines of RCD1 by the use of the cauliflower mosaic virus 35S promoter [1].

High impact information on RCD1


Biological context of RCD1

  • Under high salt or oxidative stress, RCD1 is found not only in the nucleus but also in the cytoplasm [4].
  • WS displayed ozone-mediated decreases in the expression of two AtSR/NF kappa B family members, C2-domain proteins and genes associated with cell wall growth and changes in the expression of marker genes for programmed cell death (PCD), among them RCD1, a key regulator in this pathway [5].
